This is really a good, amp, not the best obviously because you get what you pay for, but it is a great amp for the price range! People keep complainging that, "It crackles" and "It's to quiet", but they obviously are amuatuers because they dont understand the term of a PRACTICE AMP! This amp is designed for beginners and for private playing to level-up your skills. The crackling can easily be fixed that everyone seems to be complaing about by unpluging any other cord in the outlet that your amp is connected to. I get crakling all the time and this always helps. Also, if your using the cord that came with the Squier bundle pack, its a cheap cord and I advise you upgrade to remove the crakling noises. The second problem people seem to be complaing about is that they don't seem to realise its a practice amp for bedroom playing by yourself. If you go play in a band, OF COURSE your going to get drowned out! Your bandmates are probably going to have higher wattage than your amp and if your with a drummer, you need at least a 100watt amp to play with a drummer. Practice amps dont go very loud and if you really strain it to, it will sound bad because it wasnt DESIGNED for that! All in all, I give this 4 stars because the only flaw that isnt fixable with this amp is a slight buzz when you turn up the treble high. It's a great amp, and if your starting to learn how to play, go get it BUT get it in the Squier pack because this amp by itself for the price is not really a "steal" but I think it has great tone and you really get a deal from it by buying the Squier pack if you dont already own a bass.

The Rumble 15 is best when used in a very small room by yourself. Once you get together with a guitar and drum you'll be drowned out even when they're at their lowest settings. As a practice alone amp where you don't want to wake the wife and kiddies it's ok, but otherwise go for a louder amp.

Great clean sound for guitars

By Stan

About Me Experienced

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

Just like the Beatles preferred a Bassman for regular guitar work, I love the clean tone from this amp. If you get your fuzz from pedals or just love clean guitar sound,you can use the equalization to dail up some tasty tones on this amp. Good stuff.

Too Expensive, Lots of Feedback but Good for Beginners

By Quinn Obropta

from Hillsborough, NJ

Pros

  • Easy to store
  • light

Cons

  • Feedback At Higher Volume
  • Way overpriced

Best Uses

  • Jamming
  • Practicing

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This amp worked great for me as a beginner. I used it for four months before it proved too weak to do what I needed. The main two downsides are the high amounts of feedback at higher volumes, and the price. This is an amp worth around 80 dollars, but it is sold for much more. I would say to buy a used one instead, much more worth it.

Poor value for a poor amp

By keolakhone MEKSVANH

from Danbury, CT

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I got this awhile back when I first started playing bass, having known nothing about amps. It sufficed for awhile, but the tone is pretty bad. I can never seem to get a good sound out of it, though it's pretty light. I wouldn't waste my time with it, but if I had to, I'd try getting a used one from here. Better value.

Great amp.

By BRANDON MAZENKO

from Corona, Ca

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I have had this amp for almost nine years and I have never had one problem with it. As for the hissing that all you are talking about, I never had that problem too. This is a great amp not just for the starting player but for small venues as well. I played at a few gigs where the walls were covered in bricks and anything louder would of been over kill due to the bass bouncing off the walls. By the way I never used a mic on this amp when I was doing that. The trick is in the eq. So once again great amp for the money, I honestly don't know what everyone else is complaining about.

Fine amp

By Casey

from Woodbridge, Virginia

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This came in a starter pack with my squier bass. It'll put off sound but that's it. I would advise against buying this as a starter amp or buying the value pack. I'm selling it on ebay towards buying a new one. Unless you play the quietest music in the world don't get this amp.

Great Practice Amp

By Kyle Brown

from Altadena, Ca

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This little amp packs some serious BIG sound. It not venue worthy but makes a great practice Amp. Its very simple to use design allows even my grandmother to figure out whats up. 15watts doesn't sound like a lot but its more than enough power to crank it up and bother your neighbors!

I Like It

By Arthur Nelson

from Laneview,VA

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This amp is pretty good. The price is a little bit high, but over all it is reliable. The amp tends to get muddy when the bass is turned up all the way. But for mids, treble, and light bass it is perfect. I think what alot of people forget about this amp is that it is a solid state 15 watt amp and it is not really meant to play shows with. If you want loud look into a bass head and cabinet. But maybe this amp is a hit and miss type of item ( you get good ones and bad ones). I have owned this amp for a little over a year and I have not had any problems with it. If it ever got destroyed I would probably buy it again. It also handles pedals very well.
